You'll have everyone feelin' right at home on the range if you finish off the evening with cowboy coffee and lip-smacking Good, Bad, and the Fudgy Brownies. Just make sure they wipe any stray cow patties off their boots before they kick them up on the coffee table.

[Editor's note: Adding the eggshell to the coffee is an old cowboy trick that helps reduce the acidity and clarify the brew (and is thought to weigh down the grinds).]

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 quart filtered water
  • 1 cup freshly ground coffee (coarse grind; same as French press)
  • 1 whole egg shell
  • ½ cup cold water
  • Milk, for serving
  • Sugar and other sweeteners, for serving

DIRECTIONS

Bring water to a boil over the campfire in a large saucepan or coffee pot. Add the coffee grounds and eggshell to boiling water. Return to a boil, remove from heat, and slowly pour in the cold-water, letting the coffee grounds and eggshell settle to the bottom, about 5-10 minutes. Using a ladle, spoon the cowboy coffee into rustic mugs. (I like using the blue-speckled tin camping cups.) Add milk and sweetener of choice to taste. And use any remaining coffee to extinguish the campfire.
